Well the car is collected.

I took loads of pics but none seem to show the car how it looks.

The nearest for now is this one. I will have another go tomorrow.

I only took my small camera, and the sun was shining. All the images appear over-exposed.

However its great to get back in her, drive her and have some fun.

It seems to attract flies, too.

I definitely need to put the amber indicators back on, and get a orange 'Carrera' script for the sides.

Yummy - love the colour, Peter Cool

Agree that amber indicator lenses would make the old girl look even sharper.

The Audi is a 2.3 Quattro that I have fitted with snow tyres as a winter hack. However we haven't had any snow!

As I'm struggling to find wheels that work as well as those I'm toying with the idea of doing those in black, or maybe even orange. I need to dust down my photoshop skills.

Keith, a North run is a maybe. At the moment we have no one booked in Sunday night. Justine says especially if we can take in Bamborough castle. Will look at the run thread.

I took this one with my phone.

Have looked at the thread. It's going to be the best part of 650 mile round trip.

Unlikely to make it unless it's a beautiful day, and we can stay oop Norfolk somewhere. It will be a last minute decision (also dependant on bookings. Sunday's are generally our queitest night)

2003 Porsche 996 Carrera 2

PostPosted: Thu Jun 18, 2015 1:52 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

I've been looking for wheels for ages. I would like black and silver speedlines, but I can't find any in 17s (I not want 18s as performance is as important as looks for me.

The Carrera wheels that are on it (off my 996) are really light, and the car handles amazingly on them.

Current thinking is I'll do the existing wheels black and see how I get on.

If I were you peter I would pick the black centered 17" fuchs. I think they would look perfect with your car and they are again very very light.

Looks great Peter, you have to be pleased with that paint finish Bandit

Fucs in black and silver get my vote. Would suit your new paint a treat Cool

Failing that try something different and look at the Image Wheels website at their custom wheels...
